Israeli forces racially profile, deny entry to former Black Panther leader from US


www.imemc.org

Dhoruba bin Wahad was a political prisoner in the US for 19 years - 7 of those years in solitary confinement. In 1990, he was cleared of all charges when a New York judge found that US Federal agents had fabricated evidence against him as part of the Counter-Intelligence Program, or Cointelpro, created by the US government to systematically attack and destroy movements for black, Latino and Native American Liberation.

Some important highlights from the article:


Mujahid told an IMEMC reporter, "As soon as we got off the bus, we were immediately singled out by the Israeli Defense Force soldiers that were there. There was a bus full of people, and this was before they even know who we were, our history, what we were there for, or anything. We believe they saw two black men and decided to single us out. They confiscated our cell phones, and took my media equipment and cameras."



He then described a grueling 11-hour interrogation in which the two men were separated from each other and strip searched, all of their luggage examined piece by piece. Both were separately asked the same questions about their religious and political beliefs, including whether they were Muslim, what type of Muslim, if they had been on a pilgrimage to Mecca, how they felt about the government of Saudi Arabia, and many more questions about their lives and political beliefs.



The two Americans had never been to the Palestinian Territories before, and were on their way to attend a conference in Jericho convened by the Palestinian Authority on the status of political detainees in Israel.

Israel's denial of entry to certain internationals based on their race, religion or political beliefs has become extremely commonplace since 2006. Although such racial and religious profiling is a direct violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, no foreign government has taken Israel to the International Criminal Court for its actions.


This is extremely shocking and disturbing news on many levels. In layman's word's it's called "racial profiling". So not only the Israeli forces are racial profiling, they are detaining and refusing entry to "American people". The same American people whose tax money is given as aid to Israel from last many years! Is this what American people expect in return from Israel for their hard earned money?

Just did some research and found it is not the first time Israel detained an American citizen. Here are few flashbacks

Israel 'kidnaps' former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney

Israel Attacks Gaza Aid Ship; US Congresswoman Kidnapped

Former US Congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney, and Irish Nobel Prize Laureate, Mairead Corrigan Maguire, Still Detained by Israeli Occupation Government

Oh guess what US kept mum all the while a US Citizen was detained in Israeli prison. Only after spending many days in jail was she released.

So a leader of a movement with close ties to Islam, tried to go to israel?

He should have seen this coming a mile away!

If there is one place in the world that they will get away with racial profiling, it's probably the place which it happens 24/7, israel!
